The Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule impacts contractors, property managers as well as others who disturb recognized or considered lead-based paint during renovation. The term renovation covers all activities carried out for compensation that disturb painted areas such as most repair, remodeling and also maintenance activities, like window replacement, weatherization and demolition. The RRP rule is applicable to all renovation work executed in residential homes, apartments as well as child-occupied facilities like educational facilities and also day-care centers developed before 1978. Training, certification, along with work practice needs in the Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule are effective April 22, 2010. Pre-renovation training requirements are recommended now.
Requirements for Renovation Contractors Certification and Training
All firms doing renovation, repair as well as painting work should become certified. This could be achieved by applying to EPA or to the State, when it has an EPA-authorized renovation training course, and paying a fee.
Firms should have one or more “Certified Renovators” allocated to jobs where lead-based paint is disrupted. To turn out to be certified, a renovator should properly complete an EPA or maybe State-approved training program carried out by an EPA or State-accredited training center. ABLE Safety Consulting is an approved instructor.
All renovation personnel needs to be trained. Renovation employees can be trained on-the-job by a Certified Renovator to apply lead safe work practices, or perhaps they are able to become Certified Renovators themselves.
